@ELAmental is bringing his pride for @TribeSteemUp and @EarthTribe to the Homesteaders Co-op. Initially he has posted eco-friendly, organic herbal dyed tshirts for sale as well as a few original STEEM silver rounds, which he played a part in the community design.

Soon @ELAmental along with @hempress, a natural dying extraordinaire, will be offering more herbal dyed fair trade and eco-friendly products to the ELAmental Earth store on Homesteaders Co-op.

In their own words (borrowed from their Homesteaders Co-op store):

Think Not About how Much it Costs for Yourself, but Instead how Much it Costs the Earth.

We are huge proponents of using what we already have available to us, and avoiding using new products whenever possible. In doing so, we advocate the philosophy that being resourceful and thrifty should be of the highest priority if the goal is to restore the health of planet Earth. We do our best to promote this lifestyle choice to others, and help them understand how meaningful making such choices can be, and that the more people that do it, the more effective it will become. That is why everyone should also prioritize wearing used and up-cycled clothing.

– THERE IS A BALANCE –

About 50% of the clothing we personally wear is up-cycled or used garments, and 50% unbleached organic fabric from fair trade companies, that are either herbal dyed or low-impact tie dyed. We want to reduce our carbon footprint as much as possible with the clothing we select to wear, while also wearing the healthiest possible fabric on our skin (our biggest organ), since our skin is trans-dermal and we absorb what it touches to some degree. Unfortunately these two concepts only go hand in hand only when you find organic garments that are also used or up-cycled, which is rare in this world – but think about why that is…

It is because people value organic garments higher, and are much less likely to donate them, or treat them as disposable as part of a seasonal fashion trend, like how most people approach their clothing expenses. Spending a little more on a garment that is actually higher quality, forces most to treat the garment with more respect and care, which ultimately means the owner will use and wear (and love) it for many more years.

Herbal Plant Dyes vs. Low-Impact Dyes

Herbal-plant dyed garments on unbleached organic fabric is by far the healthiest option for any human to wear on their skin. Many of the companies that produce the actual dye-stuff concentrates from plants actually use way more water and fossil fuels producing those ingredients, to make the positives of herbal dyeing with these products outweigh the negatives in terms of environmental effects.
